  1. So interesting B! I think we’ve had it drummed into us from birth that we “need” to be doing something or we “need” to excel at something. Strive for this, strive for that. It becomes like the hamster on the wheel.

    1. Totally agree Sue! And it’s such a relief and such freedom to know that we don’t have to buy into that story any more. We can create, have fun, expand, explore, and do it for the journey, not the destination! Thanks for being here and for your comment. Have a wonderful day. B ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi B,
    Thank you for this video! As a graduating undergrad, I find this helpful in realizing that creating and being mindful of what I can contribute to the world rather than focusing on climbing up the corporate ladder.

    1. Julie! Thank you so much for your message. You gave me goose bumps! Respect to you for the journey you’re on, for the conscious choices you’re making and for shining your light!! So glad to be connected and grateful to have you as part of our community. Big love to you! Bx

  4. All I can say now is a big God bless you and thanks for resetting my life and heart and mind button, great positive way to start my day, peace & light!

  5. Thank you so much Bernadette!!
    This was probably one of the best descriptions on being at peace while having desired/goals I have ever heard:).
    You are so wise and I appreciate your style of teaching!
    God loves you!!

  6. Thank you for this message B. We can choose to truly enjoy the journey. I can get so caught up in my own desires and regrets that I let moments of my life slip by without gratitude for those very moments. I am learning to appreciate every day and enjoy life as it is happening. Your words are truly a gift.

  7. hi
    what do u mean by saying โ€œnot quite there yetโ€ ? could you please explain it more! thanks

    1. Hi Steve, it relates to that sense of always feeling like there is more to achieve/get/be and that you feel you haven’t quite achieved your goal/place in life, and on the never ending cycle of seeking more. Hope that makes sense ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Thanks.
        let me put it this way. imagine you crush on somebody! so you make up your mind to grab his/her hand on a date but she/he suddenly says not quite there yet! that means he/she not ready for that! correct me if I’m wrong. thanks

        1. Hi Steve, I understand and yes totally different context to what this video refers to ๐Ÿ™‚ This video is about a belief cycle that underpins how many people live/operate on a treadmill in society. What you’re referring to is that the person you’re dating isn’t quite ready for physical contact or intimacy. So in that instance it’s about being patient, trusting, respectful and both working together in the early days of your relationship to let each other move at the appropriate pace that works for you both. Wishing you the best with everything.
